As working parents we understand how busy life gets.
We noticed a lack of homemade, healthier,
quick options for meals.
We wanted to create a restaurant where everything is made

History of Mothers Day
In the 19th century groups of mothers whose sons fought or died in the Civil War would meet. In the years before the Civil war Ann Jarvis already helped to start Mothers’ Day Work Clubs to teach local women how to care for their children. In 1868 she organized a committee for Mother's Friendship Day: a day for mothers to gather with former Union and Confederate soldiers to promote reconciliation. She died in 1905 before the annual celebrations actually were established, but her daughter Anna Jarvis continued her mother's work in honoring the sacrifices mothers made for their children.
The first official celebration was at a Methodist church in Grafton, West Virginia in May 1908. It was organized by Anna Jarvis a Mother’s Day event on the very same day. Anna Jarvis continued her efforts and wanted Mother's Day to be added to the national calendar by writing letters to newspapers and politicians. By 1912 the day would be celebrated annually in many states and towns and in 1914 president Wilson signed a measure that established Mother's Day as an official annual celebration on the second Sunday in May!
The holiday was very popular and would soon be heavily commercialized by card companies and florists. Jarvis soured on the commercial interests associated with Mother's Day and around 1920 she urged people to stop buying gifts and flowers for their mothers. She was sorry she invented the day and said it had to be a day of sentiment, not profit. She would even lobby to see it removed from the calendar again. Until her death in 1948 Jarvis fought against charities that used Mother’s Day for fundraising and the commercialism of florists, card manufacturers and other companies that were destroying her Mother’s Day.
